    APU engine instead of AVJ

    looking for a low mileage AVJ engine and cant seem to find any for a reasonable price
    i have found a few APU engines but need to know if they fit ok

    Also been offered a 2000 passat with 1.8t engine but dont know engine code yet
    Do the engines fit from the passat

    Not a hundred percent but depends what your looking for but im sure most the engine blocks are the same. Its just differences in the heads and ancillarys. There is a web site somewhere that explains the differences.
